Czech transport magazine MHD86.cz organized the second year naming the most beautiful Christmas tram. More than 52,000 people participated. They could vote for Christmas trams from 17 Czech cities, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and Switzerland, the Sme daily reported.

The winning tram commutes in the Hungarian town of Miskolc. The KT8D5 Christmas tram gained 27,701 votes.

The second was the Vario LF2/2 IN Christmas tram with 21,693 votes in Plzeň. Third place went to Bratislava, where the T6A5 tram with a Nativity scene inside gained 6,420 votes. The Czech and Slovak towns took silver and bronze, positions taken by Debrecen and Budapest last year.
